Business dissolution may not be bad news in California

Usually, when a business shuts down it is bad news for the company, its owners and its executives. This generally means that the business did not produce enough profit to survive in California or in any other state. However, one company's recent business dissolution announcement is actually being received as good news by many in the company as well as the company's business partners.

The company, American Car Care Centers Inc. (ACCC), is one of the largest groups in North America that is designed to serve the interests of tire dealers. The company recently announced that it will dissolve the business organization by the end of Jan. 2014. The marketing organization represents 16 tire dealer companies, which are also considered shareholders in the corporate entity.

ACCC stated that changes in industry dynamics prompted the board of directors to dissolve the company. However, the company's President and CEO explains that the decision to end the business is a sign of success. He said that the decision to dissolve is based upon member distributors outgrowing the organization's structure. Therefore, the member distributors have benefited from being involved in the organization, which means the ACCC succeeded in its mission.

On the other hand, companies in California or in any other state which decide to initiate business dissolution usually do so because they were not able to turn their struggling businesses around for one reason or another. Many times this is caused by drastic changes in the economy which may be out of the hands of the business owners. However, this also does not have to be bad news since this will allow the business owner to move on to the next chapter in his or her life.
